Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) on Wednesday unveiled a chart showing what she called a “Liberal Fantasy Island.”

Ernst broke out her visual aid during a speech on the floor as part of a GOP “pre-buttal” ahead of President Joe Biden’s first speech to a joint session of Congress:

But it wasn’t long before her chart started trending on Twitter for an entirely different reason.

Writer/comic Keaton Patti gave Ernst’s chart a makeover, causing “Abolish Lasagna” to trend on Twitter:

Some felt obliged to fact-check a meme from a comedy writer:

This viral tweet is fake. Senator Ernst's poster had "TAX INCREASE" not "SEX BLIMPS" on her Liberal Fantasy Island poster. Several of the other items are doctored too. https://t.co/T37L1Ubw26

But most decided to have a little fun with it:

If we get Sex Blimps, it'll be a Goodyear. https://t.co/8E5dQ5yCvJ

I dont want a sex blimp. I want many sex blimps. https://t.co/jxZr7G0Sng

Let’s compromise. We won’t abolish lasagna, straights can still go to restaurants, and the sex blimps can be run on a purely private enterprise basis. In return, we get the Green New Deal, DC as a state, and expanded courts. https://t.co/gNR1aLShLx
